New In | Saint Laurent Inspired Envelope Bag

Real Vs. Steal | Saint Laurent Monogram Inspired Bag | kyssmystyle.com
I carry this bag everywhere. To lunch dates. To the mall. To the bathroom. Everywhere.

When I first saw it, I knew I had to have it. I know. Cliche right? I was attracted by the diagonal quilted pattern how similar it looks to Saint Laurent’s envelope bag. It’s now sold out.

Contrary to my work bag, which has everything in it from clothes pins (don’t ask), to coupons, to about five tubes of lipstick (that I can never find when I need them), I try to keep my weekend bags clutter free.

  • I keep a cheap wallet that I got from Target last summer. I holds all my cards and the little money I have. I beat up my wallets so badly because I used them for purses sometimes. It makes no sense to buy an expensive one. And I don’t have any money for that so…
  • Using hand sanitizer 10 times a day did not stop my from contracting pink eye last year, but I have to have sanitizer because, I mean, things are germsy.
  • I always tell myself that I’m going to stop buying perfume and buy scented body oils instead, but alas, I’m always tempted by pretty bottles and seductive fragrances. Estee Lauder’s Pleasures has been my go to fragrance for the past few months. It’s so fresh. I bought in December 2014. Wow. Time has sure flown. I can’t believe it’s 2016.
  • Sunglasses are a necessity. Not just for the haters, but for the blinding Nassau sun.
  • That little gold tube looking thing is my portable phone charger, a must have as a blogger, and because iPhone batteries last for negative two minutes.
  • My bag would not be complete without lipstick and liner. I don’t really need the liner but lipstick is an absolute must have. It’s why I have so many tubes in my bag at a time. It’s kind of a sickness. The lipstick in this post is Milani Matte Glam from their Color Statement collection. It’s a gorgeous burgundy color. I swear I have 10 lipsticks in different shades of burgundy, but its okay because…it just is.

What do you keep in your bag?

Happy new year! I know I’m so late, but I truly hope that you all are off to a good start and working towards achieving your goals.

I feel like I say this in every outfit of the day post, but this all black outfit is one of my best “Outfit of the Day” looks that I’ve put together. Putting it together and shooting it felt so effortless.

Though I’ve been absent for a few weeks *hides face*, over the past five months, with the help of Blair Meadows, photographer extraordinaire, I’ve been able to put out five outfit of the day posts. Considering that I wasn’t putting out any before, I’d like to say that I’m doing much better than I was last year.

My goal in 2016 is to put out 12 outfit posts and upload 12 makeup/hauls/get ready with me videos to my YouTube channel.  That’s 2 videos a month. Boy, that may be a bit ambitious, but I’ve been taught to set my standards high, like Beyonce. 😉

As many of you know, I’m from The Bahamas and I also live there…or here. Anyway, I’ve always admired Conesha Knowles of 242 BlqRze. She’s a fellow Bahamian fashion blogger as well as a stylist. Though petite in stature, she sure makes a loud statement when it comes to fashion.

Another one of my goals is to get to know Bahamian bloggers better, so reached out to her a few weeks ago, asking her to collaborate with me in an outfit of the day post. She agreed, and one meeting and a photoshoot later, we turned our dreams into reality. In meeting with Conesha, I also got to the chance to meet Johnique of Johnique Rolle, and get reacquainted with Bahamian bloggers, Ashley of Ashley Lynn and Peetra of Peatimexo. There are many more Bahamian bloggers that I hope to meet, but I’m taking this step by step.

My dress is from Boohoo. It’s sold out, but check them out anyway because they have the cutest trendy dresses! I’m never disappointed. My shoes are from a local Bahamian online shoe store, ohsheque.com, but they can be purchased internationally from urbanog.com, or gojane.com.

My earrings are from Tweens to Teens, and my cuff bracelets are from Jadazzles. Both stores are located in The Bahamas.
